Recipe for Time Travel in Case We Lose Each Other



Recipe for Time Travel in Case We Lose Each Other is a study of emergence through reflections of interiors, hearts, geology (volcanos), deep time, and—of course—time travel. These poems abound in moments we can look at the earth as a body or the body as an earth and attempt to understand our own relationships with others and with ourselves through approaching the unfamiliar with wonder and resolve.

Her writing is inspired by this colorful landscape and explores tales that derive from connections to her Hispanic/Lebanese-American heritage, but also her love for monsters, portals, geology, and time travel. Kristian received an MFA in Creative Writing Fiction from Emerson College (2012) and a BA from University of New Mexico (2010).
